Kayson Makai Mcbee and Dallas Thomas were reported missing Thursday, Aug. 5, 2021 after police said their mom fled with them during a DHR visit. They were recovered safely Aug. 6 in Mobile.
A Birmingham woman sought after authorities said she fled a DHR visit with her two young children was taken into custody Friday night.
The U.S. Marshals Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force arrested 23-year-old Daja Molette shortly before 10 p.m. in Mobile. Molette’s two children, 2-year-old Kayson Makai Mcbee and 5-month-old Dallas Thomas, have been safely recovered.
Birmingham police said the children were last seen Thursday at 2001 12th Avenue North. The children are in the custody of DHR and were visiting with their mother when she fled the area.
Officer Truman Fitzgerald said they did not believe the young boys were in danger but said Molette has no parental rights to the young boys.
The U.S. Marshals Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task for was asked to assist in locating Molette, said Chief Deputy U.S. Marshal Cliff LaBarge. The investigation led them to Mobile where they teamed up with the Child Advocacy Center of Mobile and received a possible address of where Molette might be.
They set up a brief surveillance in the 600 block of Azalea Road in Mobile and spotted Molette outside. Authorities said she ran inside when she saw lawmen.
Mobile PD’s SWAT team followed her inside where she was arrested without incident. She is charged with two counts of interference with custody of a child less than 18.
A second woman inside the home was also arrested on unrelated charges.
The children were found unharmed inside the residence. They are now back in the custody of the Alabama Department of Human Resources.
Molette is being held in the Mobile County Jail pending her return to Birmingham.
Molette was out on bond after she was arrested by the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office last month on a third-degree assault charge. Prosecutors on Friday filed a motion to get her bond revoked in that case, citing the two new warrants for interference with child custody. A judge has not yet ruled.
Prior to her Friday-night arrest, Molette appears to have started a GoFundMe earlier in the day. This is what the GoFundMe says, “I am needing help getting a lawyer to get my custody back of my kids. I have never got my kids taken. I was in DHR custody that’s how my kids got in DHR custody. DHR fought to keep me from getting my kids for no reason. I have never been homeless. I have never been without transportation. I have never done drugs. All i want is my kids. I did what I feel like I needed to do. May not have been the best decision but I need my babies. They all I got.”
